Thanks for the link, it made interesting reading, though it's a pity you were so selective with your quoting, maybe the complete paragraph would have been better though it's somewhat at odds with your analysis
It should be noted, however, that, despite the fact that we observed far more than 1000 cases of red light running, we did not observe a single safety critical situation. While this, by no means, should be considered as evidence that this behaviour is safe, it points to a relevant gap in research. We know, for example, from police reports, that individual crashes can be blamed on cases of red light running. Also, on a theoretical level, it can be argued that road users behaving in a predictable manner (which includes, most of the time, behaviour in compliance with road rules, e.g., stopping on red) is safer than unpredictable behaviour. Nevertheless, as far as we are aware, there is has been no quantification of the crash risk in relation to cyclist red light running. While it is reasonable to assume that stopping on red is safer than not stopping, so far, there is no way of telling how serious the issue is. Also, given that our results show that red light running rates depend on a variety of factors, it would not be surprising if also the crash risk as a result of running a red light would differ considerably. But again, information is lacking.
